Can Kim and Ra win the gold medal in mix? They had to fight against 4 tough pairs if they wanted to do that. Start from Nederland pairs in R 16, Danish pairs in QF, England or Chinese pairs in SF and probably Gao/Zhang in Final. I can't wait.

It looks as if Him/Ra has the tougher half compared to Zhang/Gao, but I will be very surprised if Kim/Ra does not take the gold.
The silver medallist should be Zhang/Gao's but I expect Kim/Lee will have some say in that.
Bronze will be between Kim/Lee and Robertson/Emms (or Zhang/Gao if they lost in the semis).

i think the two halves are about equal. bottom half have Eriksen/Schjoldager, Wida/Marissa as well as Kim/Lee. top half have Chen/Zhao, Jonas/Rikke and also Roberson/Emms.
but either way, i too think unless there is something unexpected like an illness or injury, the form that Kim/Ra has have recently, they should have little trouble.
the Chinese media did say that Zhang Jun has regained that killer smash he possesed during the 2000 Olympics and 2001 WC. they have won against Kim/Ra partly due to that killer smash. since then Zhang Jun seems to have lost his touch and thus power on it.
